Summer 2021 Courses

How will you spend your summer?

Take summer courses and move ahead in your degree.

It's tempting to spend your summer relaxing, but there are real advantages to taking summer courses. Summer courses let you get classes out of the way faster, and get ahead in your program. You can also complete summer classes to give you a lighter course load in the Fall and Spring semesters.

On this page, we highlight some of the Faculty of Arts & Science courses, many that are not normally offered in the summer. For example, this summer we are offering kinesiology courses for the first time.

Summer courses are very popular and fill quickly, so register as soon as you can.
